Biodegradable Lucozade Sport capsules offer refreshing choice to gym goers  

Gym goers in London have been given a refreshing glimpse into the potential future of sustainable, plastic-free gym hydration. Members at David Lloyd Hampton, South West London, were the first to try out a new vending machine dispensing edible capsules of Lucozade Sport. 


The edible capsules called Oohos, are made entirely from an edible membrane and can biodegrade within four to six weeks.

The trial run in partnership with Ooho manufacturer Notpla will allow Lucozade Ribena Suntory to better understand the potential for future use of these machines, using feedback from attendees for further research.


Our ambition is to develop the most sustainable packaging possible, going above and beyond to achieve our Growing for Good vision. Our collaboration with Notpla to develop more uses for Oohos is just one example of how we’re working to achieve our commitment to eliminate virgin, fossil-fuel based plastic in the next 10 years. 

Jo Padwick,
Business Transformation Manager at Lucozade Ribena Suntory
